In their stories, these women reflect on how they handle conflicts between their religious views and sexual desires, revealing how they satisfy those natural urges while simultaneously negotiating a conservative Christian message along with more liberal, secular morals. Although the concept of the “good girl” is a common thread throughout these narratives, many of the subjects surprisingly challenge the notion of “no sex before marriage,” perceiving their sexuality and insights into their church community as a means to oppose systems of patriarchy that persist in these spaces.
